I Told You Stop Following Me So Close!! by 


It was hilarious watching the dancing of the Sandhill Cranes tonight during their mating rituals. They were jumping high in the air, straight legs as you can see here and wings out to there. They sandy-grey colored birds against a black field did not show up very well, so I did this sepia color with a vignette edge to show them off a bit.
